Finding the right doctor in the Phoenix area to provide you with safe and effective
acupuncture treatment can be a daunting task. The first thing you need to know is
that to practice acupuncture in the State of Arizona, a practitioner must be licensed.
So before you trust your health to a practitioner, check his or her license. The
next thing you need to know is that there are many types of licensed practitioners
of acupuncture in the state. Some are also doctors of medicine, others doctors of
osteopathy some are doctors of chiropractic, in addition to being licensed to administer
acupuncture to patients. Many other practitioners of acupuncture are not doctors.
Next consider that there are also many different styles and systems of acupuncture.
Some are based on tradition, folklore or even superstition. Other systems are based
on modern science, neurology and scientific clinical studies.
The first thing you
need to consider is the expected results from your treatment. It is true that results
may vary from one patient to another, but you should find a practitioner who is experienced
and has a track record of good results for his or her patients.
Does it hurt? Some
systems of acupuncture are designed to aggressively stimulate the acupuncture points.
This can be an unpleasant experience. Other styles of acupuncture strive to be completely
painless. It's important to know the philosophy of the acupuncturist, before you
let him or her start to insert needles into your body.
Depending on the insurance company, your individual coverage and the practitioner
you choose, some insurance plans may help you pay for your acupuncture treatment.
Other practitioners that don't participate with insurance plans will charge you a
strict out-of-your-pocket cash fee for your treatment. Fees for acupuncture can vary
Hi, I’m Dr. George Kukurin and I have been practicing acupuncture in one form or
another for over two decades. Throughout the years I’ve studied many different forms
of acupuncture including education on acupuncture in Russia and through the Post-Graduate
Medical Education Departments of some pretty fine institutions like the Mayo Clinic,
Harvard Medical School and Johns Hopkins. In addition to the formal hours of education
in acupuncture I have had the good fortune of acquiring thousands of hours of clinical
experience treating all types of patients. I’ve treated patients with rare disorders
like Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome, Desmond Myopathy, Hashimoto Encephalopathy to name
a few. We also see hundreds of patients with headaches, neck, shoulder and back pain.
We treat sciatica, stenosis, neuropathy and other hip and leg conditions on a daily
basis. From my years in helping people with all sorts of conditions I can tell
you, if you have a condition that isn’t responding to traditional care, try acupuncture.
It routinely works when all else fails! I created this website to get the word out
about the effectiveness of this amazing therapy. It truly produces..... Life
